On Monday morning (13 June 2016), I will enter "Crystal City" and speak to the men and women behind the curtain at the AMA House of Delegates Meeting here in Chicago. Today begins the first day of registration and the meeting carries through Wednesday morning. They have devoted a tiny 1.5 hours of time to speak on MOC beginning on Monday, 13 June 2013 at 9AM, Columbus Room EF, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 Upper East Wacker Drive, Chicago. I will be joined by Charles Culter, MD of the Pennsylvania Medical Society and Mr. Charles Kroll, the forensic accountant from Minnesota with whom I have worked closely to dissect the IRS tax forms of the ABIM and ABIM Foundation. I have only 15 minutes to talk, but there will be a 30-minute question and answer session following. I understand the session will be videotaped.
As I sit here this morning and try to collect my thoughts, it is clear that I cannot possibly cover all of the corruption that I can uncovered on these pages with the ABIM and with MOC, but what I know is that there are many who still don't know about my work and the far-reaching implications it has, not just for the ABIM, but for the entire ABMS re-certification industry and colluding members of the ACGME that have enjoyed their high salaries and health club memberships on the backs of our re-certification and membership fees.
Practicing physicians across the US and around the world are a world divided from the bureaucratic administrative members of the AMA. They are keenly aware that the AMA has not had their backs in the recent years. My hope is to educate and inform, not throw flames, but because the depth and breadth of the corruption and conflicts of interest with MOC have been so dire, it is time the delegates at the AMA and the world at large be informed.
At noon today (CST) I will publish my latest work on the MOC debacle that has involved years of research and investigation. Many new revelations are exposed. This piece will form the foundation for my remarks at the AMA House of Delegates meeting on Monday. Be sure to check back here then.
Me? I'll be doing cases and will moderate comments on my blog when I can. Consequently, posting comments may be delayed until I can get to them.
Thanks for your understanding.
